Hollywood liberal stalwarts Susan Sarandon and Jane Fonda, joined by anti-Palin lefty Sigourney Weaver, are out to prove that they’re proud of their ages:

The ageing process is a stressful one for any woman, let alone a Hollywood actress.

But Susan Sarandon, 64, Sigourney Weaver, 61, and Jane Fonda, 72, are showing that being older doesn’t mean not being sexy anymore.
The trio posed in a variety of sultry poses for V Magazine’s upcoming ‘Who Cares About Age’ issue.

Nothing wrong with being proud of your age, right? I mean, who cares? Well, the magazine’s overworked airbrush and Photoshoppers, that’s who.

I think this particular issue is called “What they’d look like after a dozen vodka tonics.” First a picture from the magazine and then another from actual life that they’re supposed to be celebrating:

It’s always funny when these “keeping it real” stories are as phony as the politics of their subjects.

Here’s Jane Fonda vs. Jane Fonda:

I didn’t recognize her without the NVA anti-aircraft gun accessory.

The magazine wrote “they look great in these photos!” Sure… but with the same sleight of Photoshop the magazine could have made Michael Moore look like a Playboy centerfold within a half hour — and he might even have a better rack.

V Magazine did nothing but answer their story’s lead question of “who cares about age?” with a resounding, “V Magazine and Susan Sarandon, Jane Fonda and Sigourney Weaver, that’s who!”

The rest of the story is here if you can stand seeing a 72-year-old hippie in a cat outfit laying on a table. Is she being cool, or is it a symptom of dementia? Only the photographer and his three-foot-thick lens filter on loan from Liz Taylor’s White Diamonds commercial shoot knows for sure.

Update: A source tells me that V Magazine is also working on an “liberal & fabulous & over 70″ issue featuring men.

Ed Asner’s looking pretty good after the V Magazine treatment:

    What was it , the wife, the kids, the job, did your car not start, what ?? You`ve become Doug, The PUNISHER !! Did you check my medicine cabinet and see that I`m all out of eye bleach ?! Ooooweee!

    It`s amazing what a good artist can do with enough spackle and paint !!

    Cringe! Shudder! Gag!

    Doug, that was evil! I'm surprised my monitor didn't crack from the torment!

    I agree with SPG, where's my eye bleach?

    Oh those old bitties are not aging well at all! Ugly on the inside seeps through to the outside – just look at Ninny Piglousy & the Sasquatch FLOTUS for more proof (if you can stand it without wanting to stick knives in your eyes)!

    All that makeup & paint looks awful in those supposedly attractive pictures too. Since when does aging gracefully equal looking like a hooker?

    When does aging gracefully equal looking like a hooker? When you're a washed up, lefty, artsy actor type from Hollywierd, of course. :)

    There's a DEPENDS joke in this, but I best not…

    Doug credits a mere 3 ft thick camera lens as the possible miracle worker here, but I`m inclined to believe some whiz geeks and a bit of CGI were involved as well ! And don`t think these artists of the make-over have forgotten the "Tammy Faye Bakker – Roller and Trowel" make up kit ! We are talking a "murder of crows" feet here !

    Like a fool I went and looked at the whole "spread". That will surely replace the shark in my nightmares. The cat. On the table. The Horror! The Horror!
